Today is leap day of leap year. I'm not real sure of how important that is at happy hour in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe and Pub, but I intend to find out. It's karaoke night this evening and I haven't sang there in about three weeks so maybe I'll perform tonight. I'm not real sure but after a few cocktails I guessing that most of the people will be referring to today as Leaf Day.
Nevertheless, If it's Leap Day, count me in ! I'm not sure what one does on Leap day, but I know it only happens every four years. Taking that into consideration, I'm sure it will be an extra special night with extra special people. Maybe there'll be a total eclipse of the heart.
We have, as of today, two nominees for the Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) award. Sherry has nominated parents who allow their children to stand in shopping carts in the supermarket. I subscribe to this thought especially when the child is seventeen or eighteen years old. Jackie has nominated the press (in general), for their ridiculous concept that John McCain would be ineligible to run for president because he was born in a U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone of military U.S. parents.
The CAT awards are open for nomination until Monday at noon. As always, anyone can make a nomination until that time.
The Pictures: With today being leap day of leap year, what else would you expect but leaping pictures? I don't, however have a picture (as of yet) of ten lords a leaping. I'm not even sure what that means and I suspect that I don't want to know. Author's Note: I did, in fact, find the ten lords a leaping. While there is a discrepancy as to how many lords were actually leaping and how many were reacting to a goose (six geese a laying), I was right in my first impression that this was an area where I would elect not to participate, but that's just me. I am sure, however, that the said "lords" would not fare well in AREA 51.
